Country Bob's All Purpose sauce GIVEAWAY

 This giveaway is now CLOSED. Congratulations to Heather, who said "I follow Country Bob's on Twitter as hybroanglid."

My husband is one of those guys who lives for the month of October (hunting season), eyes the dropping price of bullets and devoutely will watch any hunting program that's on. But most of all he loves loves loves to hunt, butcher and cook his own meat.
I, personally, cannot stand the sight of all that blood, so I tend to make myself scarce in the kitchen around this time. And when it comes to the perfect condiment to compliment his meat, he is by no means imparticular! For this review, I wanted the opinion of someone who has tried a variety of different sauces, and cares a great deal about what compliments his hard-won meat.
So I asked my wonderful husband  some questions about Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce & got his opinion on everything from the package, to the last bite. (This is how it went, word for word.)

What did you think of the bottle? Appealing? Did it jump out at you?   

The bottle? What? I don't care what it looks like.
Fair enough. How did you use the sauce on the elk?
(perks up) Well, I used a steak piece of meat. It had no fat on it - can you believe I cut it so close that I had no fat? It's an art-
(clears throat) I need to know about the sauce.
Well I was giving you background... Ok, so the meat was medium-rare. It smelt SO good, I took the sauce (yeah I guess the bottle looks good) and put a dollop on the side. I didn't want it to overpower the meat. I cut some meat off and dipped it lightly into the sauce...
And??
And ... it was really good. It had an aroma to it that I liked, but the taste really went well with the meat. It wasn't too tangy - yanno, like how A1 can get? It really tasted good, my taste buds were even watering, and I put a bunch more on my plate right away, and every bite I scooped some sauce onto my  elk, it was that good. Do we get more of it? I think we should have some in our pantry, it's worth it."

Now, I have to point out, my husband is the kind of person who either likes something, or doesn't. But if it has his "seal of approval", then it's definitely a keeper. "Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce" is a keeper! My experience of it was slightly more involved. The bottle is plastic, which I liked right away (how many of us have kids that go through the fridge and you find them just as something glass hits the floor?)
I taste-tested it in a ham sandwich - perfect!, tried it on steak - again, perfect, I also mixed some in with hamburger and made a sort of  a 'spagghetti & meatballs' kind of thing - and again - perfect!
Country Bob's has done it - they have found an amazing mixture of ingredients to pull out an amazing sauce, one that will go with just about anything you can think of! As stated right on their site:

"It was 1968 when Country Bob Edson perfected his steak sauce recipe and he called it an All Purpose Sauce because it was more than just a steak sauce."



 Now what I especially liked about this unique company, is they are humble about their success. Country Bob had been making & passiong his sauce to friends and family for years before becoming a fully automated company. But here is what they have to say about all their success:

It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and  He is an Awesome Boss!

I don't think they could have put it any better!

Okay, I have TWO Country Bob's recipes that I really want to try. First, the California Bean Dip (I love dips) and then the Slow Cooker Stew (who doesn't love stew?!). Maybe even on the same day! Really, I think the Country Bob's sauce would be an interesting and delicious addition to a lot of similar recipes like these. I can't wait to go experiment! :) Thanks!
